The basic characteristic of the cities of the post-industrial age is the transition from the production of goods to the provision of services. The phenomenological determinant of the new urban economy is the use of knowledge and information, as well as deindustrialization, tertiaryization, and economic polarization of the population and flexibility of work. While decentralization and deconcentration of many business activities are inevitably taking place in the era of globalization, the concentration of key activities such as planning, management and control in a number of intersections of the global network appears to be an unmistakable feature of the modern economy. According to research findings, the potential dominance of the metropolitan region over the central city does not mean that the city known as the industrial age no longer exists. It only means that its social, cultural, political and economic domination, as a distinctive organizational form of human habitat, is no longer what it used to be. Therefore, the new urban form and habitat of the city do not appear as a complete replacement, but as the leader of contemporary urban development.
